The Holidays, already?
Well cheer up scrooge! Here’s a darn good reason to end your holiday denial: The Photojojo Holiday Gift Guide Numero Uno.
We’ve been (really, really) pumped on these photo goodies all year. So without further ado:
The iPhone Lens Dial
FREE SHIPPING! A complete three-lens optical system for the iPhoneographer that’s got it all.
Made from aircraft-grade aluminium and high quality glass, these Fisheye, Wide Angle and Telephoto Lenses are top notch.
Just twist the dial to choose your lens of choice!
Camera Tote & Pouch
This tote bag and zipper pouch are decked out in awesome illustrations of vintage cameras. Both boast plenty of room for all your crafty photo tidbits.
A bag that loves cameras as much as you? Makes sense to us.
The Light Paint Can
Looks just like a spray paint can, but paints light instead of, erm, paint!
This guy is equipped with a super strong LED for drawing with light when your camera is set on a long exposure.
Vintage Camera Mobile
Vintage cameras are our favorite kind of eye candy.
Handmade and intricately detailed, the Vintage Camera Mobile satisfies your old-school camera lust. Without costing you a pretty penny!
DIY Twin Lens Camera

You’ll learn all about how cameras work and have a brand new camera to play with.
And hey, “learning new things” sounds like a great excuse to get a new camera to us!
Lens Cap Strap Holder
Isn’t it nice when really smart solutions are also really simple?
Example: a lens cap holder that keeps the cap safely attached to your camera strap while you shoot.
No more wandering lens caps. No more scratched lenses. No more ruined photos. Ahhh.

What do you call dye that uses sunlight to develop photos on fabric? Frakkin’ amazing, that’s what.
You could also call it our Photo Fabric Dye Kit! A kit of red, orange, and blue gives you enough dye to create some serious awesomosity.
It’s a little like making cyanotype sun prints, only in a jillion different colors.

BONUS!: We’ve been playing around with this amazing stuff. Here’s what we learned!
We love taking photos, and even more, we love seeing them on the iPad’s big screen! The wait between the two… not so much.
Luckily these iPad CF and SD Card Readers get DSLR photos straight onto an iPad at lightning speeds.
Pop in a memory card and the Photos app opens — letting you quickly import sans fuss or cables.

It’s the Lo-fi Micro 4/3 Camera Lens: one multitasking lens for your Micro 4/3 camera that gives your photos stunningly shallow depth of field, dreamy vignetting, and a sweet spot of focus.
As you adjust the aperture, watch the effects change on your LCD screen!
No more guess work = no more disappointing images!

Plus, it’s so tiny, it fits on your key ring! Now you’ll never leave home without a camera!
